On the Saturday March 16, 2024 edition of the Richard Crouse Show we meet Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd, a.k.a. Merry Brandybuck and Pippin Took, from the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. They’ve built upon their famous friendship by working together on podcasts (“The Friendship Onion,” “Moriarty: The Devil’s Game”) and TV (Boyd appeared on Monaghan’s travel show “Wild Things,” and the two just announced a new reality series “Billy and Dom Eat the World”). But now they’re making their stage debut together as a different dynamic duo.

The pair will star in a new production of Tom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” in Mirvish Productions’ Off-Mirvish series at Toronto’s CAA Theatre until April 6, 2024.

Then, best-selling author Dolly Alderton stops by. She’s a regular columnist for the Sunday Times Style Magazine, and the author of the phenomenally successful memoir “Everything I Know About Love,” which she’s just finished making into a hit BBC TV series; and a bestselling novelist thanks to her barnstorming fiction debut “Ghosts.” Her latest best seller, “Good Material,” a story of heartbreak and friendship and how to survive both.

We wrap up with Glass Tiger singer Alan Frew who talks about music, how he keeps his voice in shape and much more.
